The concept of density is crucial in many real world applications.

*Engineers and Architects need to understand density to select the best materials for the job. This knowledge helps them make the most suitable choices based on factors like strength-to-weight ratio, buoyancy, and thermal properties.

*Testing density is a key way of discovering flaws and inconsistencies in manufactured products.
